The success of Hotmail, eBay and Yahoo! inspired many young Indian entrepreneurs to launch their own websites. Dotcoms flourished in India and abroad in the late 1990s, fuelled by venture capitalists that invested millions of dollars in dotcoms with untried business models. The year 2001 brought an end to many a dotcom dream in India, as most of them failed to survive. But dotcoms with sound business plans backed by well-defined revenue models became profitable.

Pedagogical Objectives:

  • To discuss the factors that contributed to the success of some of the dotcoms, and the collapse of numerous others
  • To understand the misgivings that contributed to the collapse of dotcoms in India.
